Steve Kimock christened the first weekend by inviting some of his longtime musical friends to join him for a stellar musical double header. Guest musicians included a core group of Bobby Vega (bass), Jeff Chimenti (keys) and Prairie Prince (drums) who were join by Tim Hockenberry the first night and Bob Weir, Dave Ellis and Ray White (Frank Zappa, KVHW) for night two. Weir’s guest appearance at Sunday night’s show was the first of what will likely be many special sit-ins at the new hometown club, as he’s not only a local but was instrumental in helping to re-launch the Sweetwater. Ray White has rejoined Kimock on stage a couple of times over the past few years in Denver, but last night represented the first time Bay Area fans were treated to the sounds of the KVHW classic songs in over a decade. Kimock’s history in the Bay Area is well known, and it felt ever-appropriate for the guitar virtuoso to host the first two night stand at the new club, elevating the room to a special level of musical master class that will set a tone and standard for future performances.
